Foster + Partners and Lumina have had an extremely fruitful relationship that began with the iconic Flo lamp. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the partnership, the practice has designed a series of luminaires that explore the mechanics and poetics of reflected light. All three lamps embody an honest aesthetic that is inspired by their function, the process of making and the tactility of materials.
Tia is a glass pendant light designed to be used as a single luminaire or in a cluster. It combines a hand-blown Venetian glass shade – available in three different sizes – with an integrated light engine at the centre. The light engine has a specially developed lens that evenly distributes light from the downward-pointing LED onto the glass shade. The luminaire is touch-dimmable, with the glass shade available in a variety of colours.
